More and more, WWE wants SummerSlam weekend to be a second WrestleMania, and they’re definitely getting there. Fans know the event is always going to be a big deal, and the four consecutive nights of WWE events at the Barclays Center definitely make it feel like a can’t-miss New York City event. Also, it’s disgusting in NYC in August, so why not watch some live wrestling in an air-conditioned arena?
This year, WWE is offering meet and greet sessions (for a price, of course) with a number of top Superstars on Friday, August 18 and Saturday, August 19 at Barclays. The sessions are already listed on the Ticketmaster website, but pre-sales for the meet and greets don’t go on sale until July 10. No price is listed yet, either, but if these are in line with the WrestleMania Axxess VIP sessions, expect them to be about $100 or more a pop.
Because we love you, here’s the full schedule for the two days of meet and greets.
August 18, 1:00 p.m.: AJ Styles
August 18, 1:00 p.m.: Dean Ambrose
August 18, 3:30 p.m.: Alexa Bliss, Naomi, and Asuka
August 18, 3:30 p.m.: Shinsuke Nakamura
August 19, 10:00 a.m.: Sasha Banks
August 19, 10:00 a.m.: The Hardy Boyz
August 19, 12:30 p.m.: Finn Bálor
August 19, 12:30 p.m.: Kurt Angle
August 19, 3:00 p.m.: Roman Reigns
August 19, 3:00 p.m.: The New Day
That Alexa/Naomi/Asuka photo op is for sure the most bang for your buck, especially if they’re all still champs heading into SummerSlam.
This is definitely a solid amount of Superstars hanging out and signing autographs, and it’s always a good benchmark for wrestlers’ status in the company to see them listed for one of these deals. Now open your wallets and get ready to pony up for that picture of you wearing a unicorn horn next to the New Day.
